The CSSA hosts a celebration of the Chinese New Year on Saturday
This Saturday, Feb. 6, at 6:30pm, the CSSA-UO (Chinese Students and Scholars Association) is holding an event called China Night in the EMU Ballroom.
The CSSA, according to their group’s description on their Facebook page , is the largest Chinese organization in Eugene. Their aim is to improve relationships with international partners and support the Chinese students and scholars here on campus. This event will be a night of musical performances and celebration of the Chinese New Year.
“The Chinese New Year is a traditional festival , people from all places in China will come home to stay with their family members, they will have a big meal and watch the CCTV’s Spring Festival Gala,” Xulu Luke, the organization’s propagandist, says.
However, overseas students don’t get the opportunity to celebrate this event at home, so China Night will be a replacement celebration for them.
“Our event will copy The Spring Festival Gala, of course, all actors will be overseas students. We will have a big meal that night and amazing shows. We also have many Chinese traditional elements just like New Year scrolls, food, etc,” Luke said.
Tickets can be purchased at the door of the EMU Ballroom.
